Smart Employee Gets Fake Fired to Prank Awful Customers

It seems like a pretty harmless practice and gets bad customers to rethink their roles. We wonder what would happen if a customer just said "good!" People have ways of dealing with bad customers like this flight attendant who handled a problem flyer or this donut shop owner responding to a bad review with humility.

Unsafe Coworker Who Can't Be Bothered on Phone Gets Caught on Phone

This one seems obvious. Anyone who's worked around heavy machinery knows how important it is to be mindful of  your surroundings, yet there's still coworkers out there who can't be bothered to understand how hazardous their own working conditions are. Some coworkers just don't get it, like this Karen who didn't check her email for years. Sometimes it's customers who are a nightmare, like this lady who tried to get a free washer and didn't get her way.

Power-tripping Manager Gets Most of Her Store Fired, Then Herself

Incompetent power-tripping managers can get themselves into some really stupid situations, like this boss who demanded a special contractor be on call 24/7 and ended up with a $10K invoice.

Guy Lies And Tells Co-Worker That He's Getting Fired

Shoutout to the bold employee that shows up thinking he's getting fired, and decides to wear a tuxedo and monocle. Epic. That being said, sounds like the co-worker's "joke" took things a little too far, and had the poor guy convinced that he was getting canned. 

Guy lies to his co-worker and tells him that he's getting fired, when in fact he's just having a pizza party.
